Adoption Process - Small Animals

First of all, you will need to decide which small animal will suit your lifestyle best.

Rabbits make brilliant pets but require a lot of time and are much more like having a dog than a hamster. Most of our rodents are nocturnal - They will be awake in the evenings and at night, so don’t always make the best pets for children.

Please note, that all of our small animals (except Syrian hamsters) must be kept in pairs or groups

We take particular care when rehoming to a family with children under the age of seven.

How to adopt a Small Animal:

  1. Learn about the different species to discover which small animal best suits your family, lifestyle, experience and expectations; Meet the Animals here. Please ensure you can meet our rehoming requirements before applying.
  2. If you have not visited us yet to register, please visit the centre between 10am and 4pm to discuss your adoption and complete an application form:

3. Submit photos and measurements of your pet’s accommodation.

4. Where necessary send in proof of neuter / spay and vaccinations of any existing animals you have.

All of our small animals are:

  • Health checked by a vet
  • Assessed for their behaviour and personality
  • Where appropriate, animals are neutered
  • Rabbit are also microchipped, vaccinated (against Myxomatosis, RVHD1 and RVHD2) and come with 4 weeks' free insurance with Petplan
